Reviews for Can You Survive the Jungle? : An Interactive Survival Adventure


Horn Book Guide Reviews 2012 Spring
This Choose Your Own Adventure style book begins with an airplane emergency during which "you" parachute into the Amazon jungle. Readers choose what's next: search for rescuers, build a camp, or look for the plane. Though the information is limited, the text does include a fair bit of detail about the jungle, supported by occasional photographs. The active-learning approach may engage students. Reading list. Bib., glos., ind.
